A simple Inn on a quiet island. Escape the rat race to yesteryear on remote Pelee Island. Our Inn offers 4 adults only rooms in the Main House each with an "'assigned bathroom" and 1 public bathroom. Private suites with private ensuite bathrooms are situated at the back of the property. Our Family Suite accommodates kiddos and or doggos. All rooms are air conditioned. Continental breakfast is served daily from 8am - 10am on our large wrap around screened veranda of the Main House. Occasionally our actual wandering dog - Fred and his little sister Jody stop by to beg for a bagel. Our 3 acre property offers a screened gazebo a natural firepit, picnic tables and a hammock. Bike the island, hit the winery, walk the beach, hike the trails and fall into bed at the end of each day on Pelee Island at The Wandering Dog Inn. No Wifi, No Tv... just regular old conversation and naps!

My husband and I and our sister-in-law spent 3 delightful days at The Wandering Dog Inn. Cathy and Kevin are warm and inviting hosts and very knowledgeable about the island. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and they both went the extra mile to make sure our stay was the very best it could be. We found the accommodations spacious and the beds very comfy. We were there for my husband's birthday and Cathy greeted him with cake and candle when we went in for breakfast and the other guests joined in singing Happy Birthday. It was a lovely way to start his day. We highly recommend this Inn to anyone thinking about staying on the Island.

We stayed at The Wandering Dog for 2 1/2 days and cannot recommend it enough. Cathy and Kevin are excellent innkeepers. The breakfast is great. The porch is a wonderful place to meet people, play games or just relax. The freedom of no Wi-Fi, television or cell service is amazing. The entire island is friendly and laid back. Thank you again it was awesome

Think of a place, simpler, nestled back a little in time. No channels to tempt you on the two dimensional flat world of nothingness. Bits & bytes of web eye candy are no longer easy to consume between the palms of your hands….life slows down a gear or two. Some may call parts of this experience an outrage, elements similar to what a recent Canadian Telecom giant provided…we called it peaceful. Discover this quiet little sanctuary on Canada’s most southern location…Pelee Island. The Wandering Dog Inn’s hosts, Cathy & Kevin are outstanding, providing a warm welcome and making ones stay a relaxing experience. Plentiful continental breakfast, campfires built ready for marshmallow roasting and a sunrise that brings life into perspective. If you are looking for such a getaway…highly recommended.

Cathy and Kevin are absolutely amazing as a couple and a team! They’re organized, extremely clean, very accommodating and SUPER Fun! By the end of our 2 night stay we felt like we were staying with a great big family. Wonderful stories by the campfire, breakfast and even a fun group adventure to the beach! We came home rested and refreshed! We can’t wait to return. Thanks to all our new friends and especially to Cathy and Kevin for such a great short vacation. Barb & Kyle McDonald

The Wondering Dog is a lovely Inn. Cathy and Kevin were gracious hosts. Our room in the separate building was spacious and clean. They provided great tips and advice before our daily outings. Take advantage of their local insight to avoid pitfalls. Cathy’s breakfasts were delicious. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are planning a quiet getaway to Pelee island.

We had the best experience at Pelee Island because of the Wandering Dog Inn. Our family suite was spacious, clean and a minute walk to the beach. Our dog Lola loved it as well! Nothing but wonderful memories and delicious breakfast. An amazing place to embrace the beauty of the island without the distraction from technology. The Owners were gracious and friendly. We will be back!!
